Customer Question
2014veloster been in storage...

2014veloster been in storage until last June / I bought it wit 4500 miles on it ,yesterday the clutch went out (or I think the clutch)shouldn't that be covered under. The warranty ( it has 1300,00 miles on it now )????

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the clutch been slipping? Are you having any trouble shifting?

It has been shuddering and finally had problems getting it into 2nd it froze up yesterday and I had it towed just to Hyundai

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '00 Hyundai?

2014but only 1300,00 miles on it

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

No towed to a dealer in Seramonte

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No they say they ordered the clutch & it should be in Tuesday /but maybe I shouldn't have mentioned I thought it was the the clutch??

Is it just $4 more to talk on the phone?
Auto Mechanic: Randall C, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

Honestly? I am unsure. We work for JA. They send the call request option, not me. I would be more than happy to talk on phone if need or we can keep in this post and I do my best to type and send information
